Re: Repainting a reel...

Im not really that guy who needs thing's to match up rod and reel per se, I'm more on functionality and purpose over all thing's else. Its the same performance wise as was before - the level wind has tightened up and so has the rest of the reel thankfully. Durability well its paint meant for the mar...

Re: Repainting a reel...

Thanks mate. I hope to see more of this rather than just the factory finished reels. I know people over in the States & elsewhere have access to some pretty good refinishing products and awesome skill sets.

Re: Repainting a reel...

And that's me done. Not too many drama's on the rebuilding phase, did carefully shave out some areas however I think I've still got more paint on the inner surfaces of the spool entry and inner gearbox than factory.

Re: Repainting a reel...

Thanks for the tip, it would be nice to have all the gear to do it properly however it's time and space I don't have ultimately... Did you strip back the frame to metal, as I can see the Metanium logo, or did you simply replace it? IMG_20190622_085116.jpg Ive removed the tape over the cast control k...

Re: Round Reel Question

So like comparing a Calcutta 200 B to a Calcutta 200 TE and then finally to a Calcutta 200 CQ - the gearbox geometry changes - therefore it stops being a "round reel"?

Re: Forum Restrictions

The photo thing is still not fixed. You can't expect us to contribute and make in depth reel review tear down by downsizing everything to 800x600. Linking pics from external site is getting old. How clear / large do the pictures need to be? All I've been doing is screen shooting what I want / cropp...

Re: Repainting a reel...

Well it's cold... Overcast and slightly windy (28km/h - Sthly, 19 degrees and 71% humidity) but I got sick of looking at the parts on the rack while on my day off... Yesterday was a stunning day which I could've done it all without a worry but at work naturally - but I pressed on today... I hit them...

Re: Repainting a reel...

I've taken into consideration some of the wear / corrosion over the time and painted it internally (gear plate side only) lightly, thus to mitigate further corrosion as there is / was some where the clutch parts rested on this side... While some areas are painted I will have to scratch it back / pol...

Re: Tennessee grip question

You could smartly recess one of these into the Cork onto the blank and bind on, then refill over the binding with Cork and finish it off... Would be quiet a smart option if done right and doesn't effect the weight of the rod too much. I have seen people just attach these straight to the Cork grip an...

Is there any benefit of buying both? Theyre pretty pricey. But if it comes down to it, i dont mind.
Like buying one shoe because it's got more wear than the other - gears mesh together and as soon as you introduce a new gear you may / will have gearyness issues.

Re: Casting + Internal Damage

Buy both the main and pinion - don't buy only half a gear set. Check the part numbers and cross reference. We only got the Z200H here in Aust so can't confirm the Z2020?
